The Forerunner Experience: MONDAY, APRIL 3-SEPTEMBER 10, 2023
The Wonder@Work Academy equips change-makers to advance their best work for a better world – together. You’ll build skills in our labs, apply research-based methods from the science of wonder, human flourishing, and entrepreneurship, as well as hone your workflow acumen – all with a community that sees, hears, and buoys you.
Do you ever wonder what it takes to ignite your most impactful work and boldest ideas while also feeling lit up with purpose and possibility?
Something other than 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, grit, and wishful thinking?
If so, you’re not alone. The past few years have heightened a collective exhaustion that likely was with us before the pandemic. Experiences like distraction, massive uncertainty, and overall burnout from daily to-dos, work, and parenting don’t leave much room for high-level flow & inspiration.
And maybe you’ve realized that just working harder won’t get you to the life and work you hunger for.
The Special Forerunner Experience: MONDAY, APRIL 3-SEPTEMBER 2023
The Wonder@Work Academy community equips change-makers to advance their most impactful work and big ideas—together. Less burnout. More wonder.
If you’re here, you’re likely a leader, professional entrepreneur, thoughtful business owner, professional, coach, teacher, or creative idea person who wants to shape a life of more meaningful work, artfulness, and connection.
The emergent design of the Wonder@Work Academy community stems from our founder Jeffrey Davis’s extensive applied research in entrepreneurship, mindfulness, human flourishing, and innovation plus time-tested experience in community-building. Since 2010, the Tracking Wonder team has created numerous experiences in which diverse-minded people feel accepted, connected, and creatively courageous.
We know that people flourish in a learning community when they feel:
Safe and accepted
Empowered to take creative risks
Challenged with care to think and act differently
Genuinely supported and supportive
Lit up with meaningful discovery and learning
Ready for a collective creative awakening?
The Wonder@Work Academy is here to help you do the wondrous work needed to bring your bold ideas to life and shift the culture.
How We Flow Together
We all hit bumps. We all have internal obstacles. We know that every big idea begets a series of challenges.
But here’s the thing about the Wonder@Work Academy:
We don’t bypass hard times with toxic positivity, but we also don’t wallow. We flow.
On our private, members-only Wonder@Work platform, we provide the research-backed training, tools, and support needed to dissolve rigid thinking so you can advance your most impactful work, leadership, and ideas with pragmatic possibilities.

Our Wonder@Work Shared Ethos
Hold safe + brave space: We hold space for one another to take creative risks and to stretch ourselves. We welcome thoughtful conversation and different points of view, centered in self-awareness and respect. We’re here to stretch ourselves without burning out or burning bridges.
Question the Status Quo. Curiosity is our collective superpower. Curiosity helps us keep questioning the way things have always been done so we can actively imagine how to do things better. We are here to make possibilities happen.
Celebrate diversity and inclusivity. Different points of view and backgrounds enrich each of our perspectives. Wonder momentarily suspends our biases so we can see again what is real and true, beautiful and possible.
Do It Together Beats Do It Yourself. We seek collaboration and connection over competition. Life is too short otherwise. We actively foster collaborations in this community. We can sync up and run like a wolf pack at a healthy pace with one another.
We Are Not Our Work. In a world obsessed with productivity, we recognize that whereas devotion to impactful work is key to human flourishing, it is also time for our culture to evolve beyond an attitude of productivity-at-all-costs. We embrace the value of friends, family, camaraderie, local community, and Life Outside of Work as part of our journey toward fulfillment.
